WILMINGTON, North Carolina - Junior guard Jessica Freeman matched her career high with 18 points and led four players in double figures to help UNCW outlast George Mason, 61-53, in Colonial Athletic Association women's basketball action Sunday in Trask Coliseum.
Senior guard Taleia Moton, the CAA's third leading scorer at 21.3 ppg, managed just nine points on 4-for-14 from the field.
The Seahawks took advantage of seven turnovers by the Patriots the rest of the way to nail down the win. GMU finished with 20 turnovers, including 12 after the break, and scored 26 of its 53 points in the paint.
GMU did slice the deficit to five points on three occasions, but UNCW, behind Andrews and Freeman, turned back the rally in the final two minutes. Andrews scored four points and Freeman had three over the last 1:47 to give the Seahawks a win in the only meeting during the regular season between the two teams.
